'At last an historian who sees the big picture about globalisation and its present manifestation. Robbie Robertson has produced a readable, learned book that will cause anger, debate, even dismay to those who both support and oppose globalisation. A must-read for all those who care about our common future.'
Mike Moore, former Director General of the WTO and former Prime Minister of New Zealand
'A bold, imaginative book. Robbie Robertson elucidates the origins of globalization and the subsequent paths it has followed, highlighting important lessons for how the present wave of globalization should be understood, and handled. A very stimulating, critical contribution to the contemporary literature.'
Stephanie Lawson, University of East Anglia
